It appears the two bag thieves are still operating in towns across Costa Blanca, and they need to be caught. Do you recognise the criminal couple?
ON September 13, we reported that two tricky thieves were caught on film stealing a bag from a café/restaurant, however, it appears they were caught on film back in August too.
The video, dated August 26, shows the same two perpetrators from the theft in Playa Flamenca committing a blatant bag snatch in a crowed restaurant.
The video shows the man and woman standing in the middle of the restaurant floor, with tables full of diners chatting away and enjoying their meals.
As the man pretends to be on his phone again, the woman backs up towards a white bag hanging from the chair behind her, occupied by a woman facing away from the thief who is busy chatting with her male friend.
At one point it looks like the male at the table is going to spot the female thief, however, just as he repositions himself in his chair, the bag robber scoops up the woman’s bag and the two thieves leave, just as another couple enter the restaurant.
Here is the video from Playa Flamenca that we reported earlier this month:
Posts of these bag thieves are being shared on social media and we would like to ask you to share any information you have with the local police, who have already been made aware of the two thieves.
